The ultimate in luxury air travel
The love child of Airbus and elite Italian car company Pagaini Automobili, the Airbus ACJ319neo Infinito is breaking all of the rules of traditional air travel.
Built to create a feel of indulgence and ambience the jet is kitted out with the most lavish amenities and décor to make it worthy of the yet to be announced price tag (expected to be over $100m). With a sleek cabin design characterised by customisable LED mood lighting, curving corridors and interchangeable partitions that can be altered by the touch of a switch, almost everything in the Airbus ACJ319neo Infinito can be transformed to meet the passenger’s demands.
One of the most extravagant features of the new Airbus is the sky ceiling which gives the illusion of speeding through the air with the top down, not unlike that of a glitzy sports car. Marrying nature and travel, the Airbus aims to recouple the passenger with a love of travelling, reinjecting the exhilaration that comes with flying at 39,000 feet. But, those who quickly bore of looking at infinite blue skies and clouds – fear not – the sky ceiling is also designed to be able to display any other pre-determined image that the flyer desires.
The clever technology that allows for this is a high-definition LCD screen which will be positioned throughout the cabins upper. The outside of the jet will then be furnished with HD cameras able to stream the images outside in real time to the passengers on the inside. Smart.
Soft leather carpets placed in the living areas give a sumptuous homely feel, and the elegant cream leather and wood interior and carbon-fibre furnishings give an air of effortless sophistication whilst making the most of the ample space. The jet is also equipped with a double bedroom, cinema area, luxe dining room and shower suite to make sure that travellers have all of their home comforts to hand, with extra bells and whistles
Horacio Pagani, founder of Pagani Automobili, the luxury Italian car company so exclusive they craft fewer than 50 vehicles per year, discusses the design of the Airbus ACJ319neo Infinito that was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci: "Art and science can walk together hand-in-hand: this is the Pagani philosophy. The combination of state-of-the-art composite materials never used before in an aircraft, such as CarboTitanium, with the typical design language of Pagani Automobili, has always represented our signature…”
Managing director of Airbus' Corporate Jets Benoit Defforge also commented of the new model: "In bringing together the best of the supercar and business jet worlds, we enable an elegant and seamless link for customers of both, while bringing a fresh approach to cabin design and satisfying very demanding standards.”
With unmatchable opulence there is certainly no expense spared when it comes to this new jet, and when you consider the price tag and clientele that will make use of the new design you can see why.
